Analyst Review

Bitcoin transactions are messages, like email, which are digitally signed using cryptography and sent to the entire Bitcoin network for verification. Transaction information is public and can be found on the digital ledger known as the 'blockchain.' The history of each and every Bitcoin transaction leads back to the point where the bitcoins were first produced or 'mined’. Moreover, a public ledger records all bitcoin transactions and copies are held on servers around the world. Anyone with a spare computer can set up one of these servers, known as a node. Consent on who owns which coins is reached cryptographically across these nodes rather than relying on a central source of trust like a bank. In addition, every transaction is publicly broadcast to the network and shared from node to node. Every ten minutes or so these transactions are collected together by miners into a group called a block and added permanently to the blockchain.

Furthermore, market players are adopting various strategies for enhancing their services in the market and improving customer satisfaction. For instance, on April 2022, Nium, a cross-border payments firm based in Singapore, announced the launch of a new API-based solution that will allow businesses to start accepting cryptocurrency payments. The newly launched product is called Crypto Accept. It allows online sellers to accept Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) before expanding to other digital assets in 2023. Payments are sent to internet merchants' accounts in U.S. dollars or other fiat currencies the next business day, allowing vendors to expand their market and enhance their online payment experiences while avoiding price volatility. Nium partnered with crypto payments processor BitPay to launch the Crypto Accept feature. Consumers can choose their preferred cryptocurrency wallet and scan a QR code to complete the transaction. The service will verify that digital currency is available and settle the transaction in the merchant's chosen currency. Therefore, these strategies will provide major lucrative opportunities for the growth of the bitcoin payment market.
